The design and operation of a pulse compression system is discussed. The experiment illustrates the dispersion of a short pulse on a given frequency into a longer pulse in which the frequency varies monotonically throughout the pulse duration. The dispersed pulse is compressed by the same filter which dispersed the short input pulse. The dispersive filter consists of two teramic transducers and an ultrasonic dispersive delay line
